Take Action

Support progress

You can help us build progressive power in state legislatures! As a grassroots organization, your contributions are the power behind our work, allowing us to support Democratic candidates in key districts and volunteers throughout the nation. At the state level, every year is election year and we must keep pressing forward to combat the methodical erosion of our civil rights. The 2022 Midterms start now!

What Your Contribution Will Support

When you become a donor to Sister District, you are powering our full-time, year-round work to:

  • Scale and strengthen our volunteer recruitment, training, and mobilization.
  • Provide robust campaign services to our endorsed candidates and their staff.
    • In 2020 our volunteers made more than 708,000 phone calls to voters. Check our 2020 Impact Report to learn more!
  • Spread the word about Sister District’s work via press and social media campaigns.
  • Develop technology infrastructure to support and empower our volunteer teams.

Gifts from community members like you made up more than 90% of our operating budget in 2020. We count on your support.
